Twitter

Link your team to a Twitter account, and give your players another way to stay in touch with team goings-on.

:) Contact team mates using SMS for free* — using Twitter!

:) Link your Facebook profile to the Twitter account and see team tweets on Facebook! (Here’s how)

Here’s how:

1.) You need a Twitter account. If you don’t have one register at  twitter.com.

(You can use your own Twitter account, or register one specially for your team. More than one team can use the same account if you want.)

2.) Sign in to HappyTC and click the Twitter bird button button, then “Add Twitter”.

You’ll be redirected to Twitter.

3.) Log in and authorize HappyTC to tweet on your behalf.

Then you’ll be sent back to HappyTC; great success!

Tell your team mates to use their own personal Twitter accounts to “follow” the team Twitter account; if they enable “updates to mobile” they’ll get team tweets via SMS. (They need to add their mobile devices to their own Twitter accounts.)
Now, whenever anyone contacts the team from within HappyTC there’s the option to “tweet” the message as well — which sends an SMS to all following players!

Other notes:

  • * There is no charge from either HappyTC or Twitter for using this feature; however, depending on mobile phone providers and plan, there may be a charge for incoming SMS messages
  • Twitter may not offer SMS updates in all countries; check Twitter.com for updates.
  • If you don’t want your team’s account to be “followable” by the world, in Twitter update settings to protect tweets. This will mean that you need to “approve” each player when they try to follow the team account (a bit more admin on your part).
  • HappyTC will not view, update, or store your Twitter profile, or view your other tweets. You can revoke HappyTC’s access to the Twitter account at any time.
